Rolex Trophy 2005
Sydney, Australia

Winner of the Farr 40 Division in last year's Rolex Trophy One Design and current Rolex Farr 40 World Champion, Evolution skipper Richard PERINI (AUS), will again meet friendly rival Vincenzo ONARATO (ITA) from Italian yacht Mascalzone Latino when the Rolex Trophy One Design Series is sailed off Sydney Heads, Australia from 10-12 December.
The two will be joined by Adrian STEAD, tactician onboard Mascalzone Latino and aboard Alfa Romeo for the Rolex Sydney Hobart and Steven PROUD, owner of the Sydney 38 Swish which will be racing in both the Rolex Trophy Series and the Rolex Sydney Hobart. Brooke PATON from the Sydney 38 Zen and one of approximately 25 women racing to Hobart this year, will also be on the panel. Both the boat and BROOKE will be attempting their second Rolex Sydney Hobart this year.

Boats in the Farr 40 and Sydney 38 design classes compete to be the first yacht across the finish line in each race, accumulating points over the three days of racing. The yacht with the lowest point score at the end of the Series is the winner. The racing is fast and furious and every point counts, making it vital for crews to limit mistakes in each race
